Here are 7 tips to help your nails last longer.
Make sure the nail strips are at room temperature.
If they are too cold, the strips will be hard. If they are too hot, the strips will be sticky. They need to be room temperature. You can always rub them between your hands if they are too cold.
Make sure you use my favorite nail polish remover.
This nail polish remover is non-acetone and takes off all the glitter. If you know about glitter nail polish, you know its the hardest to get off. This stuff really works and it’s sooo easy to use!!!
File, buff and polish your nails.
I love this all in one nail file. It amazing! You should be filing, buffing and polishing your nails. It definitely helps the nails adhere to your nails if you do this step. (If you want the one in the photo, message me and I can send it to you – http://www.instagram.com/angelahidernails)
Wash your hands with this dish soap.
This soap or anything else like, DAWN hand soap will be sufficient. You just want something that cleans your hands, like a degreaser.
Push your cuticles back with this cuticle pusher.
Its important to push your cuticles as far back as possible so you can get place your nail strips far back also. Your nail strip should not be on the cuticle but close to it.
Clean them with alcohol prep pads.
These alcohol prep pads make all the difference. You should always use these pad. They take off any excess oil or dirt on your nails. Believe me!! You will have dirt come off on those even after you wash your nails. It’s crazy! Use them!!!
Put them on right before you go to bed.
I always try to put them on right before I go to bed. I don’t have to worry about them smudging while I’m sleeping. I put them on and go straight to sleep. It’s ok if you are busy and you don’t have the time or if you are super tired and want to go to bed. You can put these nails strips on anytime of the day or night. You can put them on 30 minutes before you wash the dishes or go for a swim, but they last longer if you do it the way I have mentioned. Follow my steps and you will get the best results.
